Eve's Pudding

Oh well it's Sunday evening once again.
That was a quick weekend!!

Laura and Kevin came for a visit on Saturday afternoon and stayed for their dinner. 
It was lovely to catch up with them and they seem very happy and content with their lives at the moment which is really nice.
I was quite sad to see them go back home again though!

Poor Karen is absolutely loaded with a cold and is feeling a tad miserable.  Hopefully she will be feeling a bit better tomorrow. 
I got up really earlythis morning (5.30am, ouch) to take her to work - she starts at 6am. The benefit of getting up so early is that you get quite a lot done and out of the way.  I even managed to get my ironing all done by 9am - I was quite impressed with myself let me tell you :))

Anyway for dinner tonight I decided to make something different for dessert. I had my apples from my own little apple tree so I decided to make Eve's Pudding (I was going to make that joke about it 
being my pudding and not Eve's - ooops I did it anyway, sorry lol)

The ingredients needed are:

200g/7oz unsalted butter
6 apples, peeled, cored and finely chopped.
100g/4oz soft brown sugar
4 large eggs
200g/7oz self raising flour

1. Heat oven to180C/160C/gas4.
2. Grease a large serving dish with a little of the butter, then tip in the apples.
3. In a separate dish, beat the remaining butter and sugar together until pale and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, then carefully fold in the flour with a large spoon.
4. Spread the batter over the apples, then bake for 45 minutes until golden brown.

You could serve this with custard but we didn't have any so I used whipping cream instead. 
Let me tell you it was very tasty - Danny loved it :))

But I have to warn you between all of the sugar, butter and cream it was quite high in calories.  But if you only have it every so often it can't really be a bad thing - can it ?!?

Hi Ellie

Have a great week

px am always confused with unsalted butter - what is it?

I normally just throw in ordinary butter
and hope no one notices the differnce!!!!
I wish I liked apples because I'm seeing so many good recipes for them, including this one! Sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. Hope you have a good week ahead!

A great looking dessert, Ellie. I haven't had Eve's pudding since I lived in England many years ago! I must say that the dollop of thick cream just made it look perfect! Well done for your using your own apples! What sort are they?
Colds are starting to show up with the time of year... I know how miserable they can make us feel. I take a wonderful product made by Vicks which clears all the symptoms at night so that breathing becomes possible!
Have a lovely week!
I wish I could taste this! I love trying new foods!
The apples are so tasty in the fall.
Have a nice new week!
